We played Horncastle in the county cup with a mixture of Yr 7, Yr 6, Yr 5 and Yr 4 pupils in the team. Horncastle won the toss and asked St Hugh’s to bat first. Huxley and Spike got us off to a positive start with some nice strokes and good running, before Huxley was caught out. Aydin was unfortunate to get run out but Elliot came to the crease and opened his scoring with a lovely 6 over mid-on. We lost wickets fairly regularly but our scoring rate was helped by quite a lot of extras given by Horncastle. Elliot top scored with 24 and there were useful contributions from Will L with 10 and from Euan P. We finished on 110 for 8 after 20 overs.
When we bowled we had immediate success with Aydin bowling the opener in the first over. Huxley also picked up a wicket after bowling well. As we were easily on top it allowed for all 10 fielders to bowl 2 overs, and everyone bowled really well with very few wides. Rory S and Rico L picked up 2 wickets each and Leo G bowled very well and also got a wicket. Jenson was very impressive as wicket keeper and was definitely the fielder of the match.
Horncastle finished on 39 for 9 at the end of their 40 overs. We now play Stamford School in the Semi Finals!
